Happy Birthday! WP Mayor is 1 Year Old!

A big happy birthday to the WordPress mayor!

Yes, WP Mayor is one year old, on this day one year ago we had published our first post, fittingly a welcome to this new WordPress blog.

It’s been a great year and I’m really excited and proud with what we’ve managed to achieve in one year. Most importantly, we have received many notes of thanks from readers, and we are very glad to have contributed in our small way to the fantastic WordPress community.

Here are some of our achievements during the past year:

  • A steady rise in traffic, reaching the 17,000 unique visitors/month mark (Google Analytics).
  • Around 100 published posts.
  • Twitter followers: 7,100+
  • 250+ comments (thanks!)
  • Alexa Rank: 58,333

We’ve had a number of popular posts in the past few months. Here are some of the best:

and most importantly, keep on reading our posts about WordPress!

During the past months we’ve also been actively promoting daily WordPress jobs available all around the globe, seeing that the majority of our readers are WP developers, designers and bloggers. We’ve also made it possible for you to post jobs directly to the site (Update Feb 2013: feature removed), and we hope you find this useful. The constant stream of jobs is a testament to the continuous rise in WordPress usage levels.

Finally I’d like to thank Carma Leichty, who has recently joined us as a regular contributor and is doing a great job in helping us publish a constant stream of interesting posts.

Cheers to another successful year!

    Amazing. I thought WPMayor was quite successful and should be around its three or four years. Just one year! That’s really amazing. Keep up the good work!
